NWS: Severe Storms Possible in Tri-State

NWS Paducah

The area faces an "enhanced risk" of severe weather

The Tri-State is facing the risk of severe weather through Tuesday. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The National Weather Service says the Evansville area faces an “enhanced” risk of severe storms.

Forecasters say the chance for severe weather peaks overnight Monday night.

They say damaging winds are the primary hazard, but tornadoes and large hail are also possible.

The weather service says the severe weather threat continues Tuesday in southwest Indiana and western Kentucky.

Outside of thunderstorms, strong wind gusts of 30 to 40 miles-an-hour are possible through Wednesday.

The storms will give way to much colder air by mid-week with the potential for frost and freezing temperatures.

The best chance of a freeze comes Friday morning.
